EVUSHELD INJECTIONS

Evusheld injections for the prevention of COVID-19 will be offered at the Meritus Health vaccine clinic beginning Tuesday, Jan. 11.

  • Evusheld is a non-vaccination option for the prevention of COVID-19, appropriate for those who:
  • are unable to be vaccinated due to moderate-to-severely compromised immune systems from a medical condition or due to taking immunosuppressive medications or treatments which may cause an inadequate immune response to the vaccine
  • have a history of severe adverse reactions to a COVID-19 vaccine and/or component(s) of those vaccines
  • according to the approved or authorized schedule are not recommended

In some cases, this option may be recommended to a patient who is severely

immunocompromised who has already been vaccinated.

Patients should talk with their health care provider to determine whether Evusheld is an appropriate pre-exposure prevention option for them. Patient and community providers can find all the resources needed on our website: COVID-19 Prevention Injections.
